Although the coverage is very good, it omits such well-known songs as Mocking Bird Hill and Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes. Let's hope that a later edition will rectify such omissions.
Now, the minuses: Over 100 of the 500 songs are obscure to very obscure and certainly do not deserve the title of "best loved". For example, I do not know of a song called "Annabel Lee", although it is a very famous poem by Edgar Allan Poe. It could certainly be in a book of 500 best loved American poems, but not in a book of best loved songs. Also, I did find a 1905 recording of "The Belle of Avenue A" by Arthur Collins, but it must be classified as a very obscure song and hardly a "best loved" song. Perhaps a more accurate title for this book would be "The 350 Best Loved Song Lyrics plus 150 filler songs to achieve a nice round 500 Total". Again, this book is well worth the money, but doesn't truly live up to its title.
